Chilacayote is widely grown as a vegetable in Mexico and South America. It is grown for its edible seeds, fruit, and greens. Fruit skin colour is cream-white colour with green stripes and average 15-20cm long and 6kg in weight. When cooked, the flesh becomes noodle-like. Asian cuisines use it in soups and is a good substitute for the shark fin in shark fin soup. Vines are very hardy and disease resistant. The fruit stores for many months. Days to harvest: 80 - 120 days
